My mother had been in an Assisted Living and gotten very sick, to the point she was in the hospital and then sent to rehab. She was then released to go back to the Assisted Living, but she was so weak and out of it, that I just couldn't send her back. I had made the decision, long ago, never to put her in a nursing home. So I felt it was time to bring her home. She remained weak for months and then after about 6 or 7 months she suddenly got better and now she is doing so much better. This has been going on for almost 3-4 months now.
